Simple Observation: Adult ADHDers usually have no friends. I have not done any study on this phenomenon nor have I consulted the Google Oracle for wisdom. I base this observation purely on anecdotes, on conversations I’ve had with numerous adult ADHDers who have told me that for most of their life they had no friends. That is, they had (and often still have) no one who understood them, to whom they could open up, with whom they could “let their hair down” (metaphorically, of course). I hope that those who have been diagnosed at a young age and are fully aware of their ADHDness can somehow avoid the loneliness experienced by some late-diagnosed ADHDers.
